    It's amazing that you've been able to repair Yamahas this long. I bought a Sansui 8080 from you some years back and still remember well your professionalism and personal extension. I wish you well Rob.

    I've got a fleet of merrylander-serviced units out with friends and family. All of them are still providing much enjoyment for their users.

    Thanks, Rob, for the great work. Give my best to the lovely Florence. I hope the two of you enjoy your new basement digs.

    Better to spend your time holding Florences hand rather than a soldering iron, Rob.

    I still look in here from time to time, recently acquired a neat Epson V300 scanner for a project. As the scanner sits here I have several Yamaha service manuals and this Epson scans directly to PDF files. It also scans color negatives and produces positives.

    I think we're leaving out one of the rock stars of Yamaha repair.

    avionic

    Gotta put his name out there in a thread like this.

    That's a bit of a shock. I wouldn't have guessed you were a day past 79. ;)

    Please check in and keep us on the straight and narrow path. You may be weary of looking at circuit boards but I'll bet they're not nearly as entertaining as some of the things you read here. I'll guess I speak for more than just myself in reminding you that we all can benefit more from your knowledge than we could from you repairing units one at a time.

    Thanks for all you've contributed - Keep it coming!

    Not doing too badly so far and Florence still has about 20 lineal feet of wall yet to work on.:D

    Actually it is closer to 30 feet.

    I do try, but from time to time I can't resist taking the mickey out of folks.

    Take care

    Well I must admit that you brought some valid points to the issue that I failed to see before I posted it was interesting.
    best regards
